I'm sorry Tina, but I don't get this. Imagine you were photographing a white
wall that filled the viewfinder for both the 35mm and 50mm lenses. The
exposure for each lens would be identical - i.e. both lenses would have the
same shutter speed / aperture. You can't say that because a lens is wider it
somehow sucks in more light at a given aperture - if that was the case hand
held meters wouldn't work over a range of focal lengths.
